View Full Version : What's the deal with the uncapturable guardian in the Volcano hunting grounds?

Has anyone hunted in Volcano area and had the "danger" warning pop up and then find a large guardian that hitting multiple times only reduces their health by a small amount... less than 20%? Basically, the thing is "unkillable" so I'm curious why its there. I see no way to upgrade one's weapon. I even hit the thing while it was on a "break" (when normal guardians can be "one-shotted") but it had no effect.

Please post here if you figure anything out.

The damage carries over. Hitting while in "Break" is worth like 5 regular shots I think? So it takes like 6-10 hunting tickets to take it down lol. It appears at 45 seconds. Killing it gets you a 4-star. I think there's a chance of the bird also getting you a 5-star Bahamut but that might just be in the **** version so far...
